the terrifying photo shopped secrets of president barack hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of this administration. it's something the administration has been fighting over with newspapers and with congress and with all different sorts of groups suing them who have been trying to contain what mike isikoff has gotten closer than anybody else to naming. and it is happening right in the midst of really big changes happening right now in national security in washington. today in washington, of course, was secretary of state john kerry's first day on the job. he was sworn in on friday after his confirmation hearing and his confirmation vote process that were frankly a breeze. in the end, the senate vote was nearly u
. and last week alone we saw it from colin powell, brian williams and president obama himself. colin powell went on the sunday show talking about the dark vein of intolerance that was running throughout the republican party. what evidence did he provide for that assertion? we are not left wing. we don't believe in anthropogenic climate change or we don't believe there should be redistribution of wealth or we don't believe in obamacare. if we would just move to the left that would make us not racist. colin powell above all should know how not raise our party is considering selling in our party were considering supporting him despite his liberalism in 1996 for presidential run and secretary of state under president bush obviously, somebody who is treated well by the republican party but that didn't stop him anyway because now colin powell is on the left and that means we are the bad guys. president obama did in his inaugural address just last week also, there's a peculiar line in his speech where he said absolutism is not printable and name calling is not discussion. he then proceeded to spen

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening. >> good evening. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour, where we have breaking news. breaking news about a story we have been covering in detail all this week. and frankly, for a lot longer than that. tonight for the first time, more than a year after its existence was first leaked to "the new york times" after rejecting multiple freedom of information act requests, which eventually became lawsuits demanding its release, after more than a year of refusing to officially either confirm or deny its existence, tonight the president of the united states has ordered release to congress his administration's legal reasoning for why the admi
obama has the power to order the killing of americans in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me -- the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asserted that it believes it is acting within the law when president obama or some other
campaign is now in the crosshairs of republicans democrats and mr. obama's traditional support others the left. >> it's a program that used very minimally by president bush. now there are over 3,000 civilians who have been killed in this program. >> on brennan's watch, anwar al-awlaki was the first american successfully targeted for death in september 2011. two weeks later his son was killed in a drone strike. >> i think it's fair to say, far fewer civilians lose their lives in an effort to go after senior leadership and al-qaeda along the lines we are discussing as opposed to an effort to invade a country with hundreds of thousands of troops and take cities and towns. >> reporter: the draft memorandum mem oh targeting killing of americans is described as overly simplistic. >> before they decided to take an extraordinary action and essentially unilaterally execute an american says they wanted legal cover. >> reporter: senator ron widen is going to pull out all the stops to justify killing americans without judicial review. >> what i can say this president and this administration will
. >> protesters repeatedly disrupt the confirmation hearing of obama's nominee for cia director john brennan over his support for drones and the targeted killings of u.s. citizens. >> people that were standing up here today, i think they really have a misunderstanding of what we do as a government and the care we take, and the agony we go through to make sure we do not have any collateral injuries or deaths. >> 8 codepink protesters are arrested. we will speak with the group's founder who after returning from pakistan to protest drones, personally went to the house of john brennan, not on the door. he invited her in. we will find out what they talked about. you also speak with jeremy scahill, author of the forthcoming book and movied andirty wars," and melvin goodman, author of, "national insecurity: the cost of american militarism." all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. john brennan, president of and is picked to head the cia, defended the administration's controversial counterterrorism policies during his senate co

? is there a plan to build a second temporary oval office where president obama will work during construction temporarily? the white house -- the reporter says -- we say at least for now we're going to need a new sound effect. >> huh? >> huh? i think we still need a new sound effect. that one kind of sucked. we'll get a new one and keep you posted. >>> good thursday morning. right now on "first look," the northeast braces for a historic blizzard complete with powerful wind gusts. we have your weather channel forecast just ahead. >>> president obama orders the justice department to release classified documents over his choice to use drone attacks against americans. >>> plus, a bad nanny caught in the act of hitting an infant. >>> a dog with a human face. >>> and, believe it or not, a stud dwla tells women the day and time and week when they're the least attractive. >>> good morning. whether you live in the northeast or you're traveling anywhere near there this weekend, you need to know there's a whopper of a snowstorm headed this way. the national weather service is forecasting as much as two
